Razer Is Helping Clearbot Develop Ocean Plastic-Cleaning AI Drones

Razer is known for making some of the best computer gaming gear around, but the brand has other interests. Namely, they’re committed to sustainability and protecting the environment, which is why they’ve teamed up with ocean-cleaning robot maker Clearbot.

Clearbot’s aquatic robots use AI to detect and identify different types of marine plastic waste and subsequently scoop them up, helping to clear the world’s oceans of the deluge of microplastics that currently afflicts them to the tune of 11 million tons per year. Razer liked what they saw from the Hong Kong-based startup, so they dispatched a team of engineers and designers to help turn Clearbot’s prototype into a scalable, mass-marketable product. And that’s what they’ve done. The new Razer-designed Clearbot has more advanced AI and machine learning capabilities that can detect marine plastics within two meters in rough waters. It can also collect up to 250 kg of plastics in just one cycle while running on solar-powered energy. With this new more advanced robot at the ready, Razer and Clearbot are hoping that the oceans will soon be crawling with these autonomous trash-cleaners, making the world a better place for everyone living on it.
